From a Pottery Barn collection and a collectible Lego set to limited-edition caffeinated beverages, the Friends 25-year anniversary hype is at an all-time high. And of all the brands, the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf might just be doing the most. The caffeinated beverage chain has not only released limited-edition drinks to help celebrate, but it has also started selling bags of ground coffee emblazoned with the Central Perk and Friends logos on Amazon.
Available for $10.99 per 12-oz. bag, the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is selling two different flavors. The first is a medium roast ground coffee described as having a “walnut aroma” with “sweet flavor, “a smooth body” and a “soft, balanced finish.” The beans were cultivated from Colombia and Brazil, more specifically the Cerrado region of the Western Minas Gerais State of Brazil and from small family farms in the town of Andes in Antioquia, Colombia.

Coffee Bean also has a dark roast described as having a “rich aroma,” “cocoa flavor” and a “semi-sweet finish.”

Don’t use any ‘ole mug to sip your Friends brew, though. Amazon recommends pairing the ground coffee purchase with Silver Buffalo’s Central Perk 24-oz. ceramic soup mug, priced at $15.99.

If you don’t shop on Amazon, don’t fret; the ground coffees are also sold on the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s online Central Perk merch store, where you’ll also find K-Cups for both roasts, Central Perk black tea for $9.95 and two too-cute Friends-themed mugs — one that reads “we were on a coffee break” and the other with “how you brewin’?” on it. Unfortunately, both the K-Cups and the mugs are sold out, and who knows if Coffee Bean will restock considering these Friends products were already marketed as a limited-time offer.
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf will, however, continue to offer six themed beverages — one for each main character — at all of its locations. The Monica, specifically, sounds incredible.
You better get in there quick if you haven’t tried any of these themed drinks, though; they’re only available until Aug. 27.
